Christopher James Miller (born August 9, 1965 in Pomona, California) is a former professional American football player who was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the 1st round (13th overall) of the 1987 NFL Draft. A 6'2", 212-lb. quarterback from the University of Oregon, Miller played in 10 NFL seasons from 1987-1995 and 1999. His best year as a pro came during the 1991 season for the Falcons when he threw for over 3,000 yards and 26 touchdowns.

Concussions prevented him from playing longer. After he suffered five in a span of 14 months, he left the league for the first time.[1] A concussion during his comeback with the Denver Broncos in 1999 convinced him that it was best to retire for good.[2] He was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 2005.

Chris Miller was the Head Coach for South Eugene High School in Eugene, Oregon, from 2001 to 2006 where he ran one of the more successful football programs in the area. He is currently the Quarterbacks Coach for the Arizona Cardinals.
